"The Chanukah Song, part 2"

With the passing of the winter solstice, we celebrated with seasonal music, music from cold places, even some sacred music. And music about the things that keep one warm on dark days.

See Spin the Globe's CD Reviews for reviews and info on new releases. Most of the music played on Spin the Globe is available on CD at cdRoots.com or CD Universe or via mp3 downloads at Calabash.
